We had reported a few months ago that actress Richa Chadha will be next seen in a biopic on the life of Southern siren Shakeela and we have managed to get our hands on her look from the film.
In the look that has surfaced, Chadda is seen clad in a traditional Kerala saree called Kasavu Pattu. Talking about her look, Richa said, “The challenge for the look of the film is that the story traces the journey of Shakeela’s younger days to her becoming a popular figure. Thus the looks span over years and years and with passing time, her look changes and thus to show that is challenging but for me as an actor, it’s gratifying that I get to grow with the real character on celluloid. Shakeela is still a legend and we wish to do complete justice to her when the film is ready.”
Chadda has begun shooting for the film in a small town in Karnataka called Tirthahalli.
